 Products installed:
  • Nilan VPM560

Project details:

CNilan VPM560 provides mechanical ventilation & heat recovery using heat pump technology, its energy is obtained from extracted air and uses it to heat up fresh air supply into building. If there is plenty of activity within the building including solar gains the VPM560 will have sufficient energy to draw upon and if not, the Gas boiler will assist by boosting air temperature locally at air beams and with thermally well insulated building and air tight adds to efficiency of the system. From initially start up at 6am the system just need “kick-start” by circulating hot water around air beam for few hours and when staff start to arrive in the building, it’s able to hold its internal temp from there on using “active heat recovery”
